    Pop Up List Within A Field



      Pop Up List Within A Field


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac 10.9.3

      Description of the issue

      How do I set up a field where when you create a new record that the pop up list automatically appears.  I had no problems with FM 6 but can not seem to create the correct settings in order to give me the solution that I want.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Create a new record and the pop up list does not automatically appear.

      Expected result

      Want the pop up list to automatic appear

      Actual result

      must click on arrow at right hand side of box to get pop up menu to appear

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Not applicable


      Click on the arrow on the right hand side of the box

               Is this a drop down list or pop up menu? If it is a drop down list, you can get it to deploy when the cursor enters the field if you remove the arrow option on the inspector's data tab.
